In brief: Many things
Cirrhosis is a scarring of liver tissue that results from chronic liver disease and leads to a decline in liver function.
The most common causes of cirrhosis include chronic alcohol use, hepatitis b and c, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Autoimmune disorders, medications, metabolic disorders, and biliary disorders may also lead to cirrhosis.
